FROM THIS COMPANY
Less-than-truckload carrier Central Freight Lines has signed a letter of intent to acquire Wilson Trucking Corp., also an LTL carrier, in a move to expand Central’s service territory into the Southeast.
Trucking companies today are doing much more with fuel cards than purchasing diesel. As card issuers deploy technology to connect new services to their cards, fleets are using them to better control fuel spending, gather data on their operations and even book hotel reservations.
It was a year of generally slow growth for freight carriers as well as shifting political winds as Americans elected business mogul and reality television personality Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States.
